Skaters who wish to challenge their figure skating skills and who show potential as competitive skaters can participate in the Competitive Skate program. Competitive Skate is a program for skaters in singles, pair and ice dance wishing to compete in qualifying events within Skate Canada. It’s more than just skating! Skaters enrolled in Competitive Skate learn a variety of life skills as they progress up the competitive ladder. These include goal setting, focus, ability to deal with success/failure, time management and principles of fair play and sportsmanship. There are several opportunities throughout the season for skaters to participate in competitive events such as Skate Canada Sectionals, Skate Canada Challenge and Skate Canada Nationals in the Pre Novice, Novice, Junior or Senior levels.
